Not bad for the bish with the bad attitude. Do y’all remember when I emailed K. Michelle before season 1 of Love & Hip Hop premiered and she said that she just wanted to get her cd off the back shelves of Walgreens? Well She has succeeded! Just to put K. Michelles forst week sales into perspective , Ciara’s Ciara sold 58,000 in it’s first week, Kelly Rowland’s Talk A Good Game sold 68,000 and Miguel’s Kaleidoscope Dream sold 71,000 in its first week, despite having the huge radio single “Adorn” on the LP. It is important to note that she earns one of the highest first week figures in recent R&B history (no exaggeration) and does so without the benefit of a smash hit lead single. This is important because the lack of a smash hit lead single has oft been used to defend a number of unfortunate first week results recently.
K. Michelle dedicates a special song to Mimi entitled “A Mimi Story”. Mimi does not take to kind to it. Catch these T’s
